The Xeno features heavier gauge brass and a thick-walled, one-piece brazed bell which has been hand-hammered thousands of times for the ultimate in a big orchestral sound. The open-wrap F section gives a free-blowing response and the entire instrument has an evenness and balance you have to experience to believe. The tone is flexible with myriad tonal colors, and gives you both powerful projection at fortissimo and subtle control in the most delicate passages. This may well be the most expressive orchestral style trombone ever created.


One piece hand hammered bell
A one-piece bell has an axial (lengthwise) seam, making it a continuous extension of the instrument's material. This results in pure, uniform resonance and superior tone.

Larger bell
The bell is 8 11/16" in diameter. The larger bell in combination with other design improvements, produces a singing, colorful open sound with a projecting solid core.

Narrow slide
Having a narrow slide results in a faster slide technique allowing the player to get around the horn easier.

Rounded Slide Crook
Eliminating sharp turns in the crook will open the feel and response of the instrument.

Counter Balance Weight
Adding a weight contributes to the trombones focused projecting sound.

Slide lock
The unique slide lock design on all Yamaha trombones keeps the slide locked in place and keeps it from accidentally falling.

Pressure-formed tubing
Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and smoother air flow.

Newly designed case
The new case is a compact contoured shape.
